Table in Cafe Atlanta is located in northeastern Cowley, [CL], county. It's a compact little town, four blocks in each direction. What makes Atlanta special is the way the town works together. The big round table in the Branding Iron Cafe, the heart of town, is a good example. This table, and the other furniture, was built by local volunteers when they were rebuilding the building that houses the cafe; over 5,000 hours of volunteer labor. The building itself is owned by a community economic development group that makes sure that Atlanta has the essentials, including a cafe. Other community projects are an outstanding volunteer fire department and a local first-response team for medical emergencies. Community efforts also keep the downtown buildings maintained and occupied.
